Not sure about these guppies?

I’m a new guppy momma and I had a couple questions about some of my guppies. Right now I have 2 tanks with guppies and both are inadvertently mixed tanks (still having trouble distinguishing the sexes). I have one gorgeous one I’d like to separate with a known female who is currently pregnant, I think. My question is, is he definitely a male?

The female in there with him, and a few others ofc, looks swollen with a dark curved/crescent spot around the analfin area so I assumed she was a she, and a pregnant she at that. Since he has such a nice tuxedo look with an orange-pink marking on his body and tail I am hoping he’s the father!!

Hes a male.

Guppys can store sperm for around 6months so any male shes been with in that time could be a father.

Thank you!!!

I think I will separate out the others and buy a virgin emale to add in. He is so gorgeous, those photos don’t do him justice!

By the way here is the female I think is pregnant. She’s looked heavy for at least two weeks but I hope she gives birth soon. B40165ED-9C9D-4A43-AA6F-108706373D5A.jpeg
How far along does she look?

From the picture i'd say another two weeks or so, her belly still looks kinda like a round pot belly and not yet blocky.
Don't forget to post when she gives birth I'm curious to find out whether my guess made any sense :)

Thank you! I actually got told something similar by someone I showed that pic to today so I think it’s spot on! I can’t wait for her to give birth, the male she is with is GORGEOUS!!!
